Rules : Answers should be sent until January 30th, 2018, through email, to the address mentioned above. Only one submission is allowed.

Identity verification : Verification is needed, so as to avoid fake submissions. (Testees that have already tried at least one of my tests in the past are not obliged  to verify their identity.) You may choose one of the following ways :

  • Through sending a scanned copy of an ID card, passport or driving license. Face or other details may be covered if one wishes so, but name, surname and date of birth should be visible.  People living in countries that do not use the latin (or any alike) alphabet, should provide documentaion that contain latin characters. Or,
  • By sending a fee of 5 Euros to ngtfinal@yahoo.gr, through paypal.

Fee : Fee is not required, anyone can join for free; except if sent for ID verification reasons.

– As contest’s nature is competitive, in a good manner, top 30scorers will be listed in the relevant score list.
